    1. Thanks for watching! Do you have any of the zinc deficiency signs? Or have you ever used a zinc supplement?

Great vid I've been taking 50mg of zinc picolinate 4 2 years but my levels not going up what's the reason if I take copper will it help 2 raise zinc levels in 2017 levels were 7.9 umol/l in 2018 it went up 2 9.9 umol/l it's taking ages still with symptoms is it cos of taking the wrong zinc foam ?

    3. Always like it that your recommendations are based on test results not a 'maybe this could help.' Looking fwd to more videos. 😀

    4. How does Zinc interact with other supplements? How to time my Zinc intake to maximize its benefit?

    5. Very thorough and informative. Love that you explain zinc, what it can help, how to get a diagnosis and how to get treatment. Definitely keen to see more material from you! Thanks!

    6. Love this! Such good information on anxiety and depression that comes from not only a medical background but that also focus on what can be done naturally rather than just solely relying on anti-depressants as so many doctors advise. I'm already looking forward to the next video!
